Madrid can still grow under Ancelotti: Benzema
Madrid: Karim Benzema is eager for Real Madrid to continue going from strength to strength under Carlo Ancelotti after the Frenchman`s strike sealed a 1-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday.
The 25-year-old struck in the first-half to ensure Ancelotti`s triumphant return to the Parc des Princes and believes the team can aspire to greater heights under their new coach.
"We are still in preparation. The training sessions are heavy," Benzema told reporters after the match. "But little by little, we grow in strength. Ancelotti is a good coach.
"He is close to his players and it is important. We changed tactics a little bit. It is good for the team.
"I hope we will settle quickly."
Los Blancos embark on their tour of the United States next, with the result against Ancelotti`s former employers capping his return to France following Madrid`s 2-2 draw against Lyon on Wednesday.
The Italian coach`s appointment has seen the likes of Isco and Asier Illarramendi arrive as the Bernabeu outfit aim to reclaim the Liga crown from Barcelona this season.
